    In just a little over a month, it’s already time for the 2016 Primetime emmy nominations to be unveiled. With that being said, to date, what actors and actresses have the best track record of the most wins versus losses with their noms?

    From the title of this thread, I thought that this would be about who has the best track record of getting nominated when eligible. I am fascinated by how even people like Ellen Burstyn that the Emmys will nominate for fifteen seconds variably get snubbed for something high-profile like Louie. I am always on the lookout for someone with an even more perfect track record. Is it Edie Falco for example? The last time that she missed was the 2006 weird year. Before that, it was as comedy guest actress for Will & Grace in 2004. But Horace and Pete does not seem as high-profile as The Sopranos, 30 Rock or Nurse Jackie.

    Allison Janney has an amazing track record: 7 wins out of 10 total nominations. (4/6 for TWW, 1/2 for Masters and 2/2 for Mom).

    It’s still early, but so far Uzo Aduba is 2 for 2.

    As for being undefeated, Don Knotts won all five times he was nominated, all for The Andy Griffith Show. I’m not sure anyone else can claim anything close (though Patricia Wettig has three noms, all for thirtysomething, and won every time).

    You’re so right, DemonHog. I too am fascinated how Ellen was nominated by her now infamous 15 seconds performance, but was snubbed for the high profile Louie. She does, however, seen poised to win her third for House of Cards. Edie has an excellent track record!

    In terms of track records for consecutive nominations, by virtue of their shows lasting 11 seasons, David Hyde Pierce for Frasier, Ted Danson for Cheers and Alan Alda for MASH all got nominations for 11 straight years.

    As for current streaks, Tina Fey has been nominated for the past nine years in a row as both an actress (Lead or Guest for 30 Rock/SNL/UKS) and a producer (30 Rock/Golden Globes/UKS). In fact, she has amassed a total of 36 nominations as a producer/writer/actress in the past nine years and will certainly extend that streak this year.

    Claire Danes Especially if she manages to get nominated for Master of None all of her TV performances since My So-Called Life will have been at least nominated.
    1 nod for MSCL
    1 win for Temple Grandin
    2 wins (from 4 nominations) for Homeland (She has 1 more for producing but since this one’s about acting)

    Jessica Lange If she can get nominated for Horace and Pete (which is hard cause she is not really supporting) she will have been nominated for almost every TV performance of hers (Not counting Sybil cause it was DOA, she wasn’t nominated for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof)

    1 nod for A Streetcar Named Desire
    1 nod for Normal
    1 win for Grey Gardens
    2 wins (4 noms) for AHS

    Angelina Jolie doesn’t do TV but when she did she got nominated 2 out of 3 times.

    Probably Louis C.K. but I am too lazy to look at his credits. Ditto for Glenn Close. Kathy Bates has a great track record but she has missed for several shows, still worth mentioning.

    This is all I can think right now.

    Louis C.K. missed for his recurring role on Parks and Recreation (2010, 2012), but that was before he had ever gotten a SAG nomination. We shall see how he really stands with the acting branch this year, between his respective lead and guest roles in Horace and Pete and Portlandia.

    All impressive track records in their own right!
